Jorge Arce Comes Out Firing in Defense of Canelo, Luis Nery

By Miguel Rivera

Former world champion Jorge "Travieso" Arce has come out firing in defense of his compatriots, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Luis Nery.

Arce says there are way too many scenarios where an athlete is criticized by people who don't know what exists behind their preparation.

Canelo has been under fire after testing positive for clenbuterol, although everything indicates that it was due to contaminated meat, while Nery lost his World Boxing Council (WBC) bantamweight title on the scale, after weighing in at five pounds above the limit for his rematch with Shinsuke Yamanaka on February 28.


Arece made it clear that a substance such as clenbuterol does not give any physical advantage to boxers and feels confident that Canelo's test is a matter of contaminated meat, as was the case with Erik Morales, Francisco "Bandido" Vargas and Luis Nery.

"A lot of people are misinformed. It came out that Canelo had tested positive and I do not respect that a boxer is being defamed when he is disciplined.. he had never been positive in the past, but when people hear that kind of news they immediately think the worst and then you are labeled as a drug cheat," Arce said.

"It makes them look foolish to make accusations when it is not our fault. A lot of people are ignorant and only hear a positive doping test and quickly think they are drugs cheats."

"It's unfair what happened to Luis, they're calling him irresponsible for not making the weight, but people do not know how we suffer... you can not drink water, it's hard ... he changed the schedule, they took him to Japan, they're making him have a bad image when he really doesn't have one.

"There are many who have a goal to make a certain weight and make mistakes. He contacted a nutritionist and that did not work. He is young, he is undefeated and starting out. He was failed by the system. It's a little absurd that in Japan they have suspended him for life."

Canelo is deep in training for a rematch with middleweight king Gennady Golovkin, which is scheduled for May 5th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
